Winch Help

What's going on WF?

I'm looking for some help in regards to a winch. I'm looking at the Engo E9000 winch for $284.99. Which mounting plate would be good for that? I'm trying to get the best price from sites and I don't want to have a winch that doesn't fit on the mounting plate, etc. As of right now, my front bumper is a stock Sport bumper. Any help in regards with any of this would be great appreciated! If you have any suggestions with winches or experience, etc. Feel free to let me know. I'm looking to get a good price and a solid winch at the same time!

Most winches have a universal 10" x 4.5" mounting pattern, so any mounting plate that'll fit your bumper (or frame rail on a stock bumper) will work.

I believe Smittybilt makes a winch mounting plate for the stock JK bumper. I'm sure there are others.

In fact, a couple mins on Google:

Jeep JK Winch Mount

Smittybilt 2804 - Smittybilt Winch Plate for 07-11 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK with Factory Bumper - Quadratec

Warn Industries - Mounting Systems: Winch Mounting Plates

I had the Smitty winch plate and it was solid and one of the cheaper kits. The Warn is as much as a new bumper so I wouldn’t look at that one. Rough Country has one too that is cheap. There are also write ups for installing the $20 Harbor Freight universal winch plate onto the JK. It is more involved but a good, cheap alternative. Google it

Most winch plates are universal usually having 2 different mounting locations for different winches but most winches are the same, mounting wise.
